Try it. They usually write that about preorders. Haven't seen a preorder yet, where it didn't work.

A bit curious as to why people vote this cold? It's 10% off (or more, if you read the posts in the thread) and some of their prices are actually pretty decent?!

Don't want to reveal the location. The less people know it, the better chance of Game putting more codes there ;) About the expiration date: it was next to the voucher. But Game usually expire their vouchers early, so don't bet on it lasting a whole week (although it might).

that's how it should work yes. i've done it several times before. GAME only take the money upon dispatch of an order, so as long as the pre-order isnt going to be released any time soon, then it should be fine.

when you check your order after it has been placed, each individual item can be be cancelled, rather than the whole order.
#20
Added heat and rep. Just ordered Mari Party Wii and Resi Evil for 360. Will cancel Resi Evil and get Mario for £25, cheers.

Edit: I'm an idiot though and forgot to use Quidco, oh well, gonna cancel and reorder:oops:
#21
Does anyone know how Quidco works when you cancel the pre-order part of your order? I assume you will get cash back (i.e. 9%) for the amount debited from your credit card?
#22
Code not working for me
says its run out
#23
Same here.
#24
All 4 £5 off £50 campaigns were expired the same time the manic monday sale started (coincidence?).
#26
This code seems to work again. How does one go about unexpiring?

EDIT: used the report button (read it in another thread) and it worked almost immediately! Super fast mods here!
#27
This is mean. £5 off £50 is awful. Cold. Frozen. Wait until the sales.
#28
Hmm I just ordered Last Remnant and Resident Evil 5 in order to get the £5 off Last Remnant but when I checked the order after being placed it showed Resident Evil 5 as the only one with the £5 discount. Is this how it should work? It seems to me that all will happen is that the normal amount will be taken for Last Remnant.

Well, it's £5 off your complete purchase, and usually the discount is taken from the first item you put in the basket. So yes, if you put resident evil in first, the discount will be taken from that item. You might want to reconsider and put in last remnant first (or don't order such a buggy game).

You should read the first page in this thread. £5 off banjo (for example) is a pretty good discount right now. :thumbsup:

it's great now... getting a couple of sale items with it HOT

to get the discount as previously discussed on one item then cancel the pre-order item after despatch of the discounted item, i have found this out

i tried doing twice resistance2 (PS3) + resident evil 5 (Xbox360) in this order adding to basket as suggested by someone on the thread, but found that both times it took the £5 off the pre-order item so i cancelled the orders imediately. but then i noticed it had placed the order into alpha/numerical order on order management screen.

so this is what you need to do
1. put the item in basket that you want at reduced price
2. then find a pre-order item that is higher in alpha/numerical order (would suggest something more than a couple of weeks off)
3. add code and finalize order
Voila - the discount is now taken from the first item listed on order (in alpha numerical order)
4. wait until your order has been despatched at discounted rate then cancel your pre-order

example - this is how i got Resistance 2 at £29.89 after discount
1. added Resistance 2 to basket first at £34.89
2. added Shellshock 2 to basket second at £34.25 (Pre-order Xbox 360)
3. added code and finalized order
4. went to order management screen = yippee
#33
Good guide!
#34
it certainly works although i always put the cheap sale items in or non pre orders first... think it's the natural thing to do to ensure you grab it and don't forget lol... usually think of what you want after you've crossed off the main item. GOOD ONE!
#35
Okay thanks for the info EmperorScorpion will cancel the order and try again. pgrundl, I put Last remnant in the basket first and it still took the discount off Resident Evil 5 only but T obviously comes after R so I will try again.

Oh and as far as Last Remnant goes I am a big JRPG fan and i've read hundreds of reviews from RPG fans who say the game is great and that the graphical bugs do not interfere with gameplay, particularly if it is installed to HDD. Can't be bad at £12 ( if code works ) anyway :)
#36
Okay I put The Last Remnant in the basket first and then I put a pre-order game called X-Blades in second to bring the total over £50. It still showed X-blades as the one to be discounted :-( . I wonder if it has anything to do with me using points on my reward card? It's the only thing I can think of, anyone use reward points using the pre-order method?

After cancelling about 8 orders trying various different combinations i'm now pretty sure this doesn't work anymore. I've just ordered LR with £5 off my using my loyalty points because the list of cancelled orders was getting silly.

I think i've worked out the pre-order method. Its to do with the 6 digit media ID number.
Add the Last Remnant into ur basket.
The Last Remnant's media ID is 337517 (this number is located in the web url).
Now all you do now is find pre-order game with a higher media ID number than 337517.
Try 'Tomb Raider: Underworld GAME Exclusive Limited Edition' which has a media ID of 337518 and I think it'll discount Last Remnant.
#38
They are gonna look at the amount of cancellations and put 2 and 2 together and work out you are trying to get the discount applied on one product and cancel the other.
#39
Sorry my mistake Tomb raider : underworld isnt pre-order. But basically you need to find a pre-order with a higher media ID number.

That's what i'm thinking now but I have to admit the id method is tempting but trying it would make for my ninth cancellation in a row (i think). Anyone care to test it for me by placing an order?

Sod it i'm gonna try it one last time,lol. The worst they can do is not give me the discount and at the end of the day they are still getting business from me.

Right after 9 cancellations and 11 orders ( with a 10th cancellation still to complete) it finally worked. Well done for figuring it out Londonistani, it's just a shame that I have probably a 1% chance of GAME giving the discount. They probably think i'm a right asshat but hey times are hard in the credit crunch:-D
